“Superior to an
ordinary motorcycle in its ability to climb steep and rough grades” was the
claim of J. Lehaitre the French inventor of this tracked motorcycle. Built in
1938 is had a top speed of about 25mph on flat ground. Steering was via conventional
handlebars that controlled the sideways motion of the drive belt, well that
what I’ve read but can’t see how it works without dual belts.
One of those
thinking out of the box vehicles that, as the time would dictate, would have a
military propaganda image created of it.
The above is about all I could find out on the internet, if anyone knows more please get in touch.
